I can share some info for financial aid and financing options that you may wish to look into. Depending on your area, you may also have a reduced cost or even a free clinic, as well. If you'd like help looking in your area, I'll need your city and state.

Are any of these sites actuzlly helping sith vet bills
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago

Yes, each of them are either funded by grants or non-profit organizations. You should recognize names like The Humane Society of the United States. Visit the links, they are legitimate.
